MonSatano Takes Over Washington

The satan of corporations is pushing through various new bills designed to give it total control of the food supply so it can further poison the planet and reduce human population.

Four in all so far plus another authorizing funding under a 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act. One is HR 875: “Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009.” Introduced in the House on February 4 by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, (D, CT) whose husband has ties to Monsatano, with 39 co-sponsors, it’s been referred to the Agriculture and Energy and Commerce Committees for consideration as follows:

– discussion,

– possible hearings,

– “mark-up” to make changes and add amendments,

– then a vote on further action – to either table or send to the full chamber for a vote, the regular procedure for House and Senate legislation.

The bill’s text is deceptively innocuous. Its header reads:

“To establish the Food Safety Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the public health by preventing food-borne illnesses, ensuring the safety of food, improving research on contaminants leading to food-borne illness and improving security of food from intentional contamination, and for other purposes.”

Related bills include:

S 425: “Food Safety and Tracking Improving Act.” Introduced on February 12 and referred to the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry. It purports: “To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to provide for the establishment of a traceability system for food, to amend the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Inspections Act, the Egg Products Inspection Act. and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to provide for improved public health and food safety through enhanced enforcement, and for other purposes.”

HR 814: “Trace Act of 2009.” Introduced on February 3 and referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. It’s: “To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Inspection Act, and the Egg Products Inspection Act to improve the safety of food, meat, and poultry products through enhanced traceability, and for other purposes.”

HR 759: “Food and Drug Administration Globalization Act of 2009.” Introduced on January 28 and referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. It’s: “To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to improved the safety of food, drugs, devices, and cosmetics in the global market, and for other purposes.”

If its critics are right, HR 875 (and the others) are what Linn Cohen-Cole calls “Monsatano’s dream bill” to proliferate the world with GMO contamination and control its entire food supply.
